Exquisite Corpse II Exhibition

Absurdas are creating second Exquisite Corpse!
Using a variation of the technique of Surrealists, seven artists are collaborating on silhouettes that are initially cut apart like a puzzle and given to each artist. Without seeing or discussing the approaches the artists are free to explore any medium with their piece. The only rule is to keep the lines of the silhouettes intact.
This is our second Exquisite Corpse, which we will exhibit at the Market Street Gallery together with the first Exquisite Corpse and other new artworks by the artists.

Join us for an opening at :

Market Street Gallery
1554 Market Street
San Francisco, CA
